You can find a new plugin on http://svasti.de, it is Morepagedata_XH ... version 1 alpha
What does it and why did I do it?
A yoga teacher woman friend of mine asked me to make a website for her. She had very specific and complicated ideas on lay-out and colors and wanted every page with a different background image. ...
Then 6 months later another yoga teacher women friend of mine (they don't know each other) wanted me to redo her site, which was done with flash and had different colors, different slide show and different header image on every page. (A preliminary test is visible at http://yoga-detmold.de/test/)
And on my own CMSimple-website, I wanted some pages with wider content area, some with different logo, some with memberpages login area.
So Morepagedata came into existance! It enables the webmaster to set predefined design elements per page without changing the template.
- different colors of details like menu or content background on every page
- different background images in prepared page areas on every page
- display a slide show of different images on every page, different effects can be set per page
- and change other aspects like content width, newsboxes etc. per page with a
simple checkbox or options menu.
Only the configuration of the plugin is a little challenging and demands an understanding of CMSimple templates.
After finishing this I learnd from Christoph, that he had once started something similar under the name Userfields_XH. However the discussion here seems not to have encoraged him to develop the idea further. Whereas in userfields_XH all possibilities are left open, in Morepagedata_XH you must specify what your field should do, either:
- Template image list
- Slide show
- Slide show effect
- option list (freely definable options)
- Color picker
